Industrial Engineer

What attracted you to Farmer John?

What attracted me to Farmer John were the responsibilities of the IE role. Cost savings, ergonomics, time standards and leading a team to reinforce change were key things I wanted to be a part of when I graduated college.

What do you enjoy about your position?

What I enjoy the most about my position are the different types of projects I’m involved in on a daily basis.  Projects can vary from yield analyses to investment analyses of new equipment. These are areas of my job that I did not learn in school.  The support from senior IEs challenge me to think outside the box and drive continuous improvement.

What type of opportunities do you feel Farmer John offers?

Farmer John offers great opportunities in all fields.  Each individual is well rounded and very supportive of each other.  We have a great team atmosphere.

How has Farmer John developed and fostered your career growth?

I was given the opportunity to travel to Austin, Minn., for Continuous Improvement University with the support of the IE staff and Farmer John.  Farmer John also offers classes such as Dale Carnegie, which I feel have had a positive impact on my leadership abilities.

Sausage Department 2nd Shift Supervisor

What attracted you to Farmer John?

Farmer John is  a brand I grew up with in Southern California. With Hormel as our parent company, I feel that there are numerous growth opportunities within the company. Having the opportunity to work in a management position straight out of school was also very attractive.

What do you enjoy about your position?

There is never a boring day in my position. Sometimes things don’t go according to plan, so I am constantly learning. Rather than working in the office full time, my position allows me to be hands on in my department. One day I may be involved in mechanical troubleshooting, and another day I may be assisting my employees on the production line; I like that there is always something to do.

What type of opportunities do you feel Farmer John offers?

There are so many opportunities to move around within the company, including opportunities overseas. Farmer John provides opportunities for me to expand my knowledge and apply what I learned in school.

How has Farmer John developed and fostered your career growth?

Studying meat science and food production in school gave me minimal preparation for my position, even though it gave me experience running a meat operation. Managing people has been challenging, but it has taught me how to encourage teamwork and run my department efficiently.
